For high school students in grade 10 and 11 planning to attend university, Trent is here to help by offering new information sessions at both the Peterborough and Durham GTA campuses to help prepare students and their families for a smooth transition into post-secondary education.
Happening in Peterborough on Wednesday, February 20, 2019 at 7:00 p.m. and at the Trent Durham GTA campus on Thursday, February 21, 2018 at 7:00 p.m., the events will provide guests with answers to all the questions they have about post-secondary education. All students and their families are encouraged to attend.
“These grade 10 and 11 information nights present younger students with an opportunity to ask any question about post-secondary education and how to prepare academically, financially and socially,” said Marilyn Burns, associate vice-president of Communications and Recruitment at Trent University. “Trent is offering a safe place for everyone – including parents – to get answers to those hundred and one questions they have always wanted to ask. Can an arts student become a doctor? Yes! Are there pathways to law school at smaller undergraduate universities? Absolutely. Scholarships and OSAP, living on or off-campus, college-to-university pathways, we look forward to answering your tough questions!”
At the information sessions, students will learn more about:
- The Ontario Universities’ Application Centre (OUAC) and the process involved in applying to post-secondary education
- Selecting an academic program
- The pre-requisites needed to get into the program of choice
- An introduction to the great advantages of choosing to live in residence
- The difference between scholarships and bursaries and all about how to fund post-secondary education
While they are visiting Trent, guests can also take a tour of either the Peterborough or Durham GTA campus to get a true sense of what it’s like to be a Trent student.
